Lack of power, black smoke and heavy soot build-up around turbo with a risk of DPF blockage.
The fault was cured by cleaning the intake system with Forté Diesel I.M.V. Cleaner as per instructions, extended Forté Advanced Formula Motor Flush carried out and Forté DPF Cleaner and Regenerator and Forté Advanced Formula Diesel Treatment added into the fuel tank.
The fault codes were removed and the car was then taken for a 30 minute road test.
With thanks to Norman at Norman Hall Motor Vehicle Engineer in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne & Wear.
Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.
